Ugg boot case appeal

Our appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is to be heard later today at 10 am in Washington DC (or 12 midnight Australian time) .

It's pretty much an all or nothing case for both parties - if our client, Eddie Oygur, loses he will be up for $A3.5 million in damages and Deckers' attorneys fees and if Deckers Outdoor loses the appeal their UGG trademark will be deregistered, which will be game over for Deckers given UGG products contribute about 80% of their annual sales.

Eddie is being represented by Nick XenophonMark Bagley and myself.
